Happy Birthday Mom!
If it weren't for this woman I would have never brushed my hair. I would have been that child in elementary school with a rat's nest. If it weren't for my mom I would have been wearing my leg cast for all of third grade - she and the doctor were sure that bone was fixed. I would have never started wearing a bra. I would have never had the best french braids in volleyball. I would have never even started playing volleyball. I might have had to work a lot more community service hours after a certain "incident". I would have never had the awesome restaurant experiences I had. I learned the art of hosting and throwing a fab party. At 26 I could have been homeless if it wasn't for her. Even today I would be biking to work instead of driving. I'm almost certain I would have died by now from too much Top Ramen and not enough home-cooked meals. Love you!
